Bonham Strand

The Bonham Strand was a new street built from redeveloping the stone beach along the waterfront in the Sheung Wan district in 1851. Merchants from Guangzhou, Chaozhou, Fujian, Shandong and Shanghai opened shops there to trade native products of different Chinese provinces and Southeast Asia, and other sundry goods. As the merchandise came from the South (“Nam”) and the North (“Pak”), the shops were collectively named as “Nam Pak Hong”, and Bonham Strand West was also known as Nam Pak Hong Street.
